Truly Nolen Pest Control recently promoted Verne Keller to commercial district manager in Florida.
When not in the field, Keller will be based at the company’s Orlando, Fla., service office.
Keller joined the company in March 2023 as a manager-in-training, and has been in the pest control industry for 33 years. Most recently, he was a vice president of East Coast acquisitions for Certus Pest from April 2020 until January 2023. Prior to that, he was business development manager for Versacor Pest Control from July 2019 to March 2020, and with Steritech Group for almost 29 years where he started as a service specialist and worked his way up to regional director.
Keller earned a bachelor of scienced degree in 1989 from State University of New York at Fredonia. He takes over for Jim Pitt, who retired from Truly Nolen after 31 years with the company.
“I was fortunate to work with Jim for a few months prior to his retirement, and I am excited for the opportunity to continue what Jim has done through the years in this position,” said Keller.
